The original Yaktrax design has the following features:

  • Yaktrax Walker ice grips are made out of an injection moulded thermal plastic elastomer designed for easy on and off.
  • Extremely light weight, between 45gm and 95gm depending on size.
  • The 1.2mm steel coils are protected against rusting and hand-wound to give you 360 degrees of traction on ice and snow.
  • The steel coils include 70% recycled material, making them eco-friendly.
  • When you walk in the Yaktrax Walker Black, every step you take places hundreds of biting edges in direct contact with the ice beneath your feet to help prevent slips and falls on icey surfaces.
  • Yaktrax Walker ice grips can be worn in temperatures as low as -40 degrees celsius.
  • The patented design of the Walker makes it a unique solution to walking on packed snow and ice.
  • The outer band conforms to the length and width of your boot or shoe.
  • The high strength horizontal coils provide forward and backward stability. The vertical coil pattern provide side-to-side stability.

Just back from 6km walking in YakTrax Walker and they really are great.

 

My street and drive are ice covered at least 1-2 inches thick and then it melts on top of the ice and it is impossible to stand up. I purchased the Yaktrax and let me tell you, they are worth every penny. 5*

 

I would recommend it for anyone living in an area with snow and ice. I got them for the whole family!! 5*

We suggest you fit the Yaktrax walker while seated, lift one leg up so your ankle is on the other legs knee, take the ice grip and locate the front, slip over the toe of your footwear then pull the back of the grip over and up the back of your heel. Once in place make sure the coils are centred on the shoe or boot and repeat the process for your other foot. The video below will help to explain this process. Yaktrax are only for use on ice or snow, using Yaktrax on other surfaces is dangerous and may cause injury or damage.
